We're talking of playing with the liquid, or even swallowing it. Not harmful, you'll crap it out. Really.

Yes, I've worked in labs, two national labs in fact. Beware salts, organics, and huffing boiled or aersolized mercury. But other than that, not a threat. Playing with balls of the stuff in your hand won't hurt you.

You use phrases and wordings in both your posts only a U.S. writer would use.

And those OTHER english speaking countries in UK, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, UK all have the "shorter than 165 cm average" going on, PLENTY of women 5cm or more shorter than that.

Those women of other (shorter) ethnic backgrounds will be in online dating in US and Canada (if you want to claim just over the river), so your point is invalid

No. You missed the boat, so to speak.

Since you write as someone from the USA, plenty of your fellow citizens and immigrants are from those countries. And I forgot to mention also the UK countries where average height below 165cm, meaning half the women there are even shorter.

So all the flavors ice cream buffet, from double choco-fudge to custard to mango to vanilla, are just a short hop away for you, and they speak English, and long term relationship possible.

man below 165cm will probably have close to zero chance

Thankfully you are wrong. Look at the averge height of women in many asian, african and latin countries: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H...

That 165cm dude just needs to try out all the flavors of the ice cream shop buffet!
